Once upon a time the height of luxurious outdoor living was to spread a picnic blanket on the lawn, relax on a candy striped deck chair, or be really indulgent and sunbathe on a fold away sun lounger. So what has changed? Well in terms of our desires for enjoying the fresh air nothing. Its just that today more and more people wish to enjoy the ‘Al Fresco’ experience in as much style as possible. For the uninitiated this article introduces the concept of the ‘Outdoor Lounge’. This sensational range of outdoor lounge furniture ideas would have been inconceivable for most people just 50 years ago, but the increasing popularity of outdoor rooms has motivated many designers to come up with their own imaginative ranges of outdoor lounge furniture ideas.
The outdoor lounge furniture idea arises from the desire to create as much comfort outside as inside our homes. The available furniture range has expanded to enable us to create complete room settings in the fresh air, on balconies, sun patios or decked areas. Because each outdoor room arrangement is likely to be at least semi-permanent, the outdoor lounge furniture idea must be made from materials that are practically able to withstand the elements. Either this or very tough protective covers need to be incorporated into the design to keep furniture safe from wet weather conditions.
